Today on the 9♦️ in Leo, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Sun card in the Waking Spread which is itself. This date is called the Double 9♦️. This reading is about the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/18, 2/16, 3/14, 4/12, 5/10, 6/8, 7/6, 8/4, and 9/2.

The 9♦️ refines, completes, and resolves desires in progress with values.

The 8♠️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that one needs to change desires to come into alignment with authentic values, but one works extremely hard for desires and thus one feels extremely ambivalent about then changing course.

The J♠️ Waking Mirror indicates that one acts impulsively while learning about one’s values. Initially, one looks around to discover anyone that seems successful and satisfied. One imitates them only to discover that their success when imitated often does not produce happiness. One can study carefully to find an example of success that is closely aligned with personal values. Then, one can progress toward real happiness.

The 4♣️  Sleeping Mirror indicates that one is learning to accumulate rewards and success by relaxing and thus making good decisions. The more relaxed one becomes, desires and values align so that happiness is an opportunity.

The 9♦️ has great capacity to love and care for others and oneself. The way to stay in the space of care is by adventure, fun, and change.
